I'd love to hear folks' strategies for building and maintaining their place in various cottage industries.
Whether you do it part time or full time, those of you making things for sale, or working as freelancers, or are running small businesses, how do you do it? How do you make a budget? How do you prioritize? What is your hiring strategy? How do you think about your own growth relative to the size of your market? How do you draw a boundary line around "your market" and estimate its size? Does this process and perception influence your approach to growth? When did you know you were ready for this kind of independence?
Or are you like me? Back on the corporate clock after years of independence... I'm sure you have your reasons too. But seriously, what's up with that? I guess I'll say we're just regrouping. At least, that's my story right now.
